And the winner…(Maybe)…Glenn Beck.

Glenn Beck is lying again. In his recent show, he gives Obama grief for not naming a country that is satisfied with its single payer system. Several time in his speech to the AMA, he referred to the fact that he was not pushing a single payer system. He had to address it because many liberals think that a single payer system is the way to go.

Beck continues by saying Obama’s press secretary couldn’t name one. This is a lie. He names three. Watch for yourself:

If he had of asked me, the first country that comes to mind is the United States. What do you call Medicare? Most people claim that Medicare works pretty well. Yes, it has problems, but for those who can’t afford anything else, it’s pretty damn good.

This isn’t Beck first flirtation with the asshat. You can read about the others here, and here.
